Three must-visit Walla Walla Wineries

These must-visits off the downtown trail do not disappoint.

Named in 2011 by USA Today as friendliest small city in the US and by Rand McNally’s Best of the Road contest, Walla Walla, WA is home to Whitman College, world-famous sweet onions and a rapidly evolving wine scene in WA state. It seems a new tasting room is opening up every week in the revitalized downtown with a foodie scene to match.  Here are three winemakers off the beaten path that must be visited for the views and the vines.

Sleight of Hand Cellars, a funkadelic place to explore wines and spin records.
